Morning tea raises over $2000 for MS

21st November 2016

Christine Onishko is a frequent visitor to the Black Olive Café on Kensington Road, Rose Park, and has become friends with the owners, Stav and Michael Nicolaou, over the last 10 years. So when they were looking to host a fundraising morning tea, Christine and her battle with multiple sclerosis immediately came to mind.

Christine was happy to arrange a quiz, door prizes and items to be auctioned. She invited her family and friends to attend. The Black Olive Café hosted the event and donated the delicious food and hot beverages.

Not letting the guests forget why they were there, Christine included a question about MS in every round of the quiz, and everyone was asked to wear red in an effort to 'STAND UP TO MS'.

“The fundraiser was a real buzz. Everyone had so much fun and it was a great opportunity for everyone to learn a little bit more about multiple sclerosis,” says Christine.

The morning tea was a huge success and raised an amazing $2,040 for the MS Society. Not a bad effort for a morning’s work! Well done to Christine and the team at the Black Olive Café.

A big thank you to those who supported the event through donations and prizes including: Penny Mitchell Designs, King William Road, Hyde Park; Jane Cummings Skincare, Finnis Street, North Adelaide; Wild HairM, Payneham Road, College Park, The Lenzerheide Restaurant, Belair Road Hawthorn and Mosaic Hair, Egmont Terrace, Hawthorn.
